Queensland Native Seeds

Corymbia intermedia

Scientific NameCorymbia intermedia
CategoriesTree
Common Name(s)Pink Bloodwood
FamilyMyrtaceae

Description

"Tree to 35 m tall. Forming a lignotuber. Bark rough and tessellated to the small branches, grey or brown." (Euclid, 4th Ed.)

Notes

Corymbia intermedia is a reasonably accessible tree for seed collectors. The seed is used in smaller amounts, usually by the nursery industry or in an occasional direct seeding project. Like many Corymbia spp. the seed and chaffy material has low density and so the time cost of collection is relatively high. Workers involved with this species should study Euclid, 4th Ed. to avoid confusing it with species such as C. clarksoniana and others.

Historical Notes

Distribution

"Coastal plains and ranges from north of Newcastle in New South Wales almost to Cape York in Queensland with some inland occurrences, notably the Blackdown Tableland west of Rockhampton."
